About 30 kilometres from Fiskecentrum Saxnäs are great allocated fly fishing waters (the stretch from the dam below the lake Ransarn to the lake Gikasjön), close to the road, where you have a great chance of catching a large trout or char. The season is long and begins in the early spring, often in May but sometimes as early as April. The summer months of June, July and August is an exciting period with lots of different insect hatchings. There are usually fewer fishermen occupying the waters during September, which appeals to many.
